I am an attorney practicing in the areas of family and juvenile law in Phoenix, AZ. I represent persons and families in a variety of different matters including dissolution of marriage, legal separation, child support, paternity, parenting time, legal decision-making (formerly "custody"), spousal maintenance, modifications and enforcement of existing orders, relocation, orders of protection, injunctions against harassment, Department of Child Safety cases, dependency, termination of parental rights, guardianship, and adoption.

Prior to entering private practice, I was an Assistant Attorney General with the Arizona Attorney General’s Office, where I represented the Arizona Department of Child Safety in dependency, guardianship, severance, and adoption matters. While with that office, I appeared in several hundred juvenile court hearings, including trials, evidentiary hearings, and mediations. As a result, I have extensive in court experience.

I began my legal career with the ASU Alumni Law Group, where I specialized in and represented clients in family law matters. While at the ASU Alumni Law Group, I was mentored and supervised by an experienced family law litigator. I gained trial experience in a variety of family law matters while in this role. 

I attended Arizona State University for both my undergraduate and law degrees, what is often termed a “double devil.” Go Devils!
